(Los Angeles, CA) - DENK gallery is pleased to present Conceptual Craft II, its highly anticipated follow-up to Conceptual Craft, the show's first iteration in September of 2017. A thematic continuation of the first, the exhibition features new and recent works by a freshly curated group of 12 Los Angeles-based artists, all of whom are working with sculptural media through process-inflected approaches, varying from the minimal to the narrative. The show emphasizes a return to the studio and its material interests in "crafting" the object as a vehicle for concept. Highlighting the interdependence of ideation and process, Conceptual Craft II presents works that express content through the material concerns of their physical making.

The exhibition explores the conversion of the immaterial to the tangible through the obsessively hand-made. "Craft" in this exhibition is proposed as a conceptual process of object making and transformation, with the artist placed firmly at the helm of their studio production. Rather than pitting the development of concept and the creation of the object in opposition as extraneously competing concerns, the artists in Conceptual Craft II focus on the integrative nature of their ideas and the physical process of their materialization.

The mutually defining reliance of concept and execution has cultural roots in LA. Historically, Los Angeles as an art center has a unique legacy of fabrication and manufacture; the city's varied history has included everything from aircraft and aerospace innovation, to custom car culture, industrial design, architecture, film, and television production, and, of course, the material-based practices of the Light and Space Movement, epitomizing this close interaction of concept, material, and manufacture. This legacy resonates throughout Conceptual Craft II as a peripheral constellation of themes and unites an exciting cross-section of contemporary artists with vested interests in the conceptual valence of objects.

Conceptual Craft II features works by Gioj de Marco, Sean Duffy, Tim Ebner, Joséphine Wister Faure, Kristen Morgin, Rachel Lachowicz, Tom LaDuke, Patrick Nickell, Michael Pierzynski, Tia Pulitzer, Ross Rudel, and George Stoll.
